Emirates and Citi have formed a partnership, offering flyers a wide range of exclusive products and services. For every dollar you spend on retail purchases using your Emirates credit card you earn points, all of which are collected in your Skywards account and can be redeemed for rewards.
It does not cost you anything to join the Emirates Skywards program. All you have to do is complete a simple application and you can become a member in no more than five minutes. From there, you can enjoy special benefits every time you fly with Emirates. With the Miles you earn, you can select from a variety of flight and upgrade rewards.
The Skywards program is tiered, making it easy for you to gain a higher level of benefits as time goes by. Remember, you must always reference your nine digit Skywards membership number when making a reservation, checking into a hotel, or dealing with one of their partner companies. This will ensure that your Miles are credited to your account without delay. You only earn tier Miles when you fly Emirates. With these, you can make progress towards the Skywards Silver and Gold membership levels. Once you reach a new tier, you hold onto this status for at least the next 12 months. You need 25,000 tier Miles to earn Silver status and 50,000 Miles to step-up to Gold membership.
